The Palentinan republic of Pauliestien is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 644 million Pauliestienians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Pallentine. The average income tax rate is 15.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pauliestienian economy, worth 42.7 trillion Pallatins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 66,336 Pallatins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, kidnapping has become the latest get-rich-quick scheme, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, and drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pauliestien's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pauliestien is ranked 104,569th in the world and 5,730th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 347.28 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
